• Acer C720 trackpad driver \[SOLVED\]


    Upon installing a semi-botched (given how recent builds of arch 64 fail to boot on this particular laptop) Antergos 64bit on my Acer C720 Chromebook, I found that the trackpad fails to work. I have tried to follow this [page on the Arch Wiki[/url:3u75apym] in order to install the proper modules. When following the instructions, the provided script spits out text similar to:

    Hunk: #1 FAILED at 54.
    Hunk: #2 succeeded …
    Hunk: #3 FAILED at 335
    2 out of 3 hunks FAILED – saving rejects to file drivers/…

    I happen to be relatively new to linux (< 1 year) and don’t fully understand what course of action I should take next. Should I downgrade my kernel (how) and try some of the other provided scripts on the AW page? If someone could point me in the right direction, I would gladly appriciate it.

    If I haven’t adequately described my predicament, please request the extra information requried to diagnose my problem and I will try to get back to you quickly.
